1) Fastenal (fastenal.com) is a wonderful place for really weird fasteners. They aren't marine
, but I get a lot of good stuff there. They may have that lock nut.
2) I'm about to service
my Seafurl Mk 2 for the first time since I bought the boat 2 years ago. The rig is coming down, so I'll have all winter to look. What info did you get on parts
